Franz Julius Delitzsch (1813–1890) was a German Lutheran theologian and Hebraist. He was a professor of theology at the University of Rostock from 1846 to 1850, at the University of Erlangen until 1867, and then at the University of Leipzig until his death. He is most known for translating the New Testament into Hebrew. To this day, the translation remains the standard Hebrew New Testament and a mark of Delitzsh’s compassion for the Jewish people. Throughout his life, Delitzsch defended and advocated for the Jewish community, and in 1880, he established the Institutum Judaicum in Leipzig to train missionaries to work among Jews. He also wrote a number of commentaries.
